2022 Yamaha MT-07 ABS arrives in Japan
Yamaha has revealed the 2021 MT-07 ABS for the Japanese market. The middleweight naked roadster has managed to receive some significant updates in terms of aesthetics, features and mechanicals.
With the latest update, the bike has received a newly updated powertrain that is compliant with BS 6 emission norms. In addition, it gets a tweaked riding position, a new headlamp, as well as revised exterior styling.
While the bike retains its sharp and aggressive design on the outside, there are fresh updates in the form of a new headlamp, and new tank extensions on both sides with graphics. The bike has also received new body-coloured rims and a split seat setup with rear grab handle strap. The final touch of the exterior design of the bike is given by its sleek tail section and chunky exhaust.
